Cardano is one of the prominent blockchain networks running on a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. Founded by Charles Hoskinson (a founding member of the Ethereum network) in 2017, Cardano enables owners of its ADA cryptocurrency to help operate its network and vote on changes to its software rules.
As Charles Hoskinson is a renowned researcher with a degree in Mathematics, Cardano differs from the other projects by emphasizing a research-driven approach to design. Cardano’s operation is based on a group of well-thought-out technologies, all of them working together to make Cardano a high-speed blockchain. It runs on Ouroboros proof-of-stake consensus algorithm and allows smart contract developers to deploy decentralised applications (dapps) on it while paying transactions fees in ADA, its native token. Input Output HongKong (IOHK) the company that developed Cardano blockchain has published more than ninety academic papers with respect to Cardano, cementing Cardano’s place as a well-researched and ‘provably secure’ blockchain.
Since its creation, Cardano has consistently ranked as one of the top ten coins on Coinmarketcap. After finally transiting from the federated Byron model to a decentralised Shelley model, it has garnered much attention from the trading community.
As a top ten cryptocurrency, Cardano is available across any crypto trading platform because of its huge liquidity. Most advanced crypto trading platforms offer margin trade of ADA with different leverage options. Depending on the trading platform, some can offer up to 100x leverage on your capital to trade ADA.
Go long or go short on Cardano when the price is rising or falling using the Overbit platform. Profit from trading both ways.
Overbit allows you to trade Cardano with leverage. With leverage you can get a lot more exposure to the ADA price movement than the amount you deposit. This also means you can trade ADA using your Bitcoin or USDT without taking delivery of the ADA.
Let’s say ADA is trading at $0.50 and you believe the price will get to $0.65. You can use leverage to purchase a larger amount of ADA than your deposit. At $0.50, if you want to purchase 20,000 ADA, it would cost you $10,000 USD. If you leveraged your position at 15X, then the calculation would be as follows:
1/15 * 20000 * 0.50 = $667 USD.
If the price of ADA rises to $0.65 and you close your position, you stand to make a profit of $3,000 USD. However, if the price drops by $0.03, you would lose your entire $667 USD.
We can apply a similar example if you short the market. Let’s say ADA is currently trading at $0.50 and you expect it to drop in price by $0.15. You can short the market by placing a sell trade. As above, we will short 20,000 ADA using 15X leverage, the calculation would be as follows:
1/15 * 20000 * 0.50 = $667 USD.
$667 USD would be the capital required. If ADA drops to $0.35, then you stand to profit 20000 * 0.15 = $3,000 USD. If the price rises by $0.03, then you will lose your entire $667.
You can get a more accurate calculation of the margin requirement and your liquidation price in Bitcoin or USDT – on the deal ticket window of the Overbit trader.
With a Cardano leveraged trade, you can get up to 20X the exposure of the capital you deposit.
